Still, the place was too silent. The tents were empty, the fire was off. I bent down trying to feel the warmth from the wooden shards, and they were cold. Something that meant they had been away for a long time.
I went close to the shore, thinking that maybe they were working on the ship, ready to live the island, too focused on the job that they forgot about me. But, who was I kidding? Of course, my father wouldn’t have forgotten about me.
They were gone, totally gone. Who-knows-where gone! And I was starting to panic. “Fuck” I covered my face with my hands, falling on my knees, facing the sea. The strong waves caressing the shore mirrored the blood that flew inside me, pushed strongly by the pumping of my heart.
The same heart that skipped a bit as I froze when I heard some steps behind me. They seemed to follow a frantic pace, and there I thought I was going to die. “Please, don’t hurt me!” I cried, still keeping my back to the unknown guest.
“We have to go!” it was Bette.
“We have to go!” she insisted. She studied my face, I could see apprehension on her face. Her hands on both sides of my face, “Are you ok?”
“What?” I repeated. “Yes, I’m ok. What is happening?”
“Tina, we have to go!”
“Would you stop sounding like a broken record and tell me what’s going on?”

I was nervous, pissed off, by the fact that I couldn’t find my father and the band of idiots, and most of all I felt frustrated, because seeing her again awoke all the things I tried to keep silent in the cave; and there they were crashing down, like sparkles, following the length of my spine, going right down to my toes. And I pressed my lips on hers. Forcefully. That kiss was telling her: “Here it is, here’s what I think about you, here’s why I can’t forget it”. The moan that escaped from her almost made me pass out. A moan that became a groan, as she forced herself to stop the kiss.
“Tina” her chest raising up and down. She exhaled, trying to steady her breath. “As much as I’d like to continue this… we really have to go”
